Who will have more career majors once they are both retired:

28-year old Marat Safin who currently has 2 majors including 2 other finals



OR

22-year old Dinara Safina who currently has 0 majors but 1 final appearance but is six years younger than her brother

The way the womens game is right now, I will say Dinara will get more.   Will Safin get anymore?    I can't see how but it is possible.

I think that is a pretty bold statement considering she is playing best on tour right now!

Oh, you're showing you're inexperience here, jeffrx. She'll definitely win 12-17 slams. In fact, kittens is just about to start a thread claiming Dinara will be the GOAT.

Safin is done winning slams.    Safina might be able to get 3 somehow.  So I voted Safina.

So, 12-17 slams it is....I stand corrected!

Dinara will never win a major.

That is a bold considering she is really coming into her own and the womens game is in total shambles right now.
I wouldnt feel bold enough to say any reasonably good player on the womens tour will never win a major, considering the state the womens game is in these days.

I don't think she has enough mentally up there to win one.  I simply don't believe in her, she may very well prove me wrong, but I'm pretty confident on this one.

I think it's safe to say that if any one of the top 100 women played any one of us, the best of us would be hard pressed to win a game.
Just wanted to keep things in perspective.

She got to the finals in Paris, so all it would take is one more victory. It's not that far-fetched.
